  • If you should be bored in California
    I'm sure I'm not the first to warn ya
    Don't read in too much to all the signs and turns
    Keep your wits about you with your mind freedom

    If you should be bored in California
    I'm sure I'm not the last to warn ya
    The natives scaled the mountains for the promise of the sea
    But deem the land unworthy of theM evidently

    We salute the sun because
    When the day is done
    We can't believe what we've become
    Something else to pray upon
    And evidently
    It's just another vanity
    Another something to believe
    The curse of the contemporary

    We salute the sun because
    When the day is done
    We can't believe what we've become
    Something else to pray upon
    And evidently
    It's just another vanity
    Another something to believe
    The curse of the contemporary
